    Active Autowerke | S65 Ford Hotrod Level 2 Build

    A customer of ours decided to do something a little different by swapping an S65 in his custom built Ford Hotrod. We decided to go with our level 2 kit because of ease of install and with a weight of just below the 2,000 lb mark and 540 whp it should be a quiet the rocket.


    We will be tuning the customer stand alone ecu to get this beast up and running shortly. Stay tuned!


    Ill update with more pictures as the customer sends them.

    Productive couple of weekends of work.

    With the Active level 2 supercharger going into the S65, consensus was change the connecting rod bearings. As a 14,600 mile engine (5/08 vintage), I thought I was doing so prophylactically. A friend whoís a BMW dealer tech came by to help. We couldnít believe the bearings were totally shot. Heís bringing them to work to show the regional manager.

    Replaced with the VAC Motorsports/Carillo teflon coated bearings and ARP bolts.
    VAC also did their baffle magic to the pan.

    Picked up a genuine 1954 Bridgeport off Craigslist. Super tight and just in time! Although was surprised to learn no 230 neutral to my garage. An inverter and a trip from the electrician last week-end allowed me to mock up the alternator (March) and modifying the brackets to the Active Autowerke Level 2 SC kit.Click here to enlarge

    Blower bracket extras!!!

    But before I could mount the blower, I needed to chop out the driverís side angle bracket up front to provide clearance for the tensioner and belt. I had already cut out the lower back-half of the X-brace and replaced with a crossmember. This time I opted for gussets.

    The modified Active brackets

    Decided on the Chassisworks removable sidebar brackets and fabbed up the sidebars.

    Ordered a fuel cell to drop down from FuelSafe. With the flanges was going to be tight to get in with the body rail across the back. Converted to a removable brace, adjustable with set screws to the correct height. Still need to clean up the sides.

    Finally got in two hoops for the E-brake and shift linkage, Started milling a bracket for the linkage, but just ran out of time.

    I've been struggling with how to support all that extra weight of the Intercooler and custom radiator as well as the Grille in an aesthetically correct way as the FFR brackets are not close to up to the task. As going without hood, side panels and fenders, look was important. Finally decided needed to sit on a solid base. Bought a set of repro frame horns for a '32 Ford and I think I've settled on an old school look. Ignore the cardboard box simulating the IC and radiator.

    Also managed to get the pulleys rearranged, and added one, to the Active kit to clear the frame for the blower as well as finished the mount for the shift linkage.

    I've looked into this hot rod myself as I would like to build a car at some point for fun. Some pretty sweet looking versions out there:

    Sticky,
    I'd love to see what you'd come up with, and more importantly, the motor you'd choose. Check out the special edition Factory Five and Hot Rod Magazine announced this week:

    very cool project

    Other people eat shit and die.

    It's a supercharged 5.0 Ford Aluminator Coyote putting out 650 HP. That's 10 HP more than the Active Stage 2 SC I'm putting in, but with the standalone, the racing alternator, deletion of the A/C compressor and power steering pumps and custom exhaust, I'm expecting closer to 700 HP from the S65. I'm actually heading to Active a week from Monday with the Grille to finalize fabrication of the intercooler modifications and piping. By the way, you asked me a while back who was doing the standalone. I firmed that up this week. I have been dealing directly with Cosworth and they put me in touch with John at KMS Racing in Sweden who is going to build it. Will be Pectel SQ6M based with fly by wire and Traction Control. John will come over to do a custom map on the dyno when we're ready. Will also be using the Cosworth ICD digital dash.
